Caities Birthday

Where have I been, I hear you ask.  Well, I've been organising my daughter's birthday.  Caitlin turned 8 on Monday and had her birthday party at an indoor rock climbing venue.

We made her invitations (of course) but it was hard to decide on the style of invitation to suit the theme of her party (rock climbing).  In the end we decided to go with an outdoors theme.  For the girls' invitation we stamped the grass from the Inspired by Nature stamp set and then punched out butterflies from the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set.

For the boys' invititation we used the Inspired by Nature stamp set and replaced the butterflies with stars

And then we made the lolly bags - 26 of them.  I'm not sure if you can see the shape of them, but they look like Sunnyboy cartons (remember the Sunnyboy ice blocks we used to get in summer when we were children??)

We stamped each container with a thank you stamp from the Upsy Daisy stamp set

I can't believe my big girl is now 8.  Everyone had a fantastic time at the birthday party and I would highly recommend indoor rock climbing if you want to tire your children out!!
